What happens if they don't love you back - will you lose their friendship? (The only answer I don't have is whether or not they like you back.
You'll have to find that one out on your own.) By having this conversation with your friend, you've made the decision that it's more important to reveal your feelings than to live a lie by hiding them any longer.
You might be able to be friends again down the road, but don't rush it.
Okay, so imagine your BFF just got out of a relationship with a super hot, great guy. No matter who dumped who, it’s a sensitive situation… If you’re willing to date your friend’s ex, then you’re probably not really friend’s with this “friend” of yours. No matter how much you like your friend’s Ex, you can always find someone else you like just as much – after all they broke up for a reason.
It’s been a few months, and suddenly he’s flirting with… You’ve always had a little crush on him, ever since before they started dating, and now it looks like your chance to actually date him. and your friend is definitely going to be uncomfortable (if not furious) about seeing you with her ex. Trust me, dating the guy your best friend just dated is going to ruin your friendship, or at least put a serious strain on it. Emerald Says: There Are Plenty Of Other Guys Out There Why on Earth would you date your friend’s ex? Not only is it unethical (certainly not the same as, like, eating cute kitties for breakfast, but definitely on the list of unethical things), it’s also kind of icky. Melanie Says: No, But Because Of Him, Not Her A few years ago, a good friend of mine actually set me up with a guy friend of hers who she used to date.
Do you go for it, even though your friend was with him first? She not only said it was okay, she was the one who made it happen!
If you're gay, you will almost inevitably date a friend's ex at some point.
Also, here’s an explanation of what it REALLY feels like when your best friend dates your ex, in GIFs.
They wholeheartedly believe that it's wrong, disrespectful, and if a friend did that to them, they'd never talk to that person again.
They believe this is something everybody knows, that they're just following the rules.
You feel good about the fact that you know your best friend would never do something like that to you…
Lots of people have told me unequivocally that they would never date a friend's ex.
